Whether you are a film aficionado or a good old-fashioned movie buff, the DC Ranch Film Club brings together residents who appreciate movie-going and enjoy discussing their experiences.
The Film Club’s format is similar to that of a book club. A film is selected several weeks in advance of each monthly gathering and attendees see the film on their own. At the Film Club gathering, attendees share insights, impressions and themes during a facilitated discussion. The meetings feature a guest speaker with ties to the film industry who can share an insider’s perspective on the art and craft of moviemaking.
The Club’s first featured film, “Friends with Kids,”is a smart, slightly edgy comedy with a blockbuster line-up—think Jon Hamm and Kristen Wiig—and surprising ties to DC Ranch. Silverleaf resident and Ranch Association board member Fred Green is one of the principals of the company that produced the film. At the inaugural Film Club meeting, Green will talk about his role on the production team and describe his days on the Brooklyn film set.
